The Chancellor leads the campus in fulfilling the University’s mission of education, research, and service to the community. The four- part mission of the University is aimed at academic excellence from a pluralistic and multidimensional perspective, the education of students to work in a highly complex and diverse society, the improvement of the quality of life or our communities by training professionals with multicultural competencies, and at an educational philosophy based on a commitment to social responsibility in all our programs and services.

The Chancellor ensures that, through the implementation of the strategic plan that is derived from its mission, all members of the campus community – faculty, administrators, staff, and students – work together to promote the mission.  The Chancellor provides vision, gathers and manages resources, and facilitates a work environment that sustains the University‘s goals and objectives.

The Office of the Chancellor works in in close collaboration with the President’s Office, the faculty, staff, students, and community members to ensure that the campus is a vital presence in the community and  a responsible  steward of the University’s mission for higher education.

The current Chancellor at the San Juan campus is Dr. Jose Cabiya who is assisted in his role by Dr. Jaime Veray in the capacity of Assistant to the Chancellor for Academic Affairs.  Mr. Peter Rubio is the Interim Chancellor for the Miami Campus.
